This question is not a security question but about a security tool.
Why am I unable to leverage my decent hardware (I think) with hashcat?
This is what I see when I run hashcat in Win 10 (64-bit).

Then I downloaded and installed AMD Radeon software adrenaline edition but unable to figure out what to download on the Intel page.
Which software should I download in order to use hashcat effectively?
